The dream of starting a full-service design studio became a reality for myself and my varsity friend, Pieter Ludeke in 2010. In line with most good agencies, we started Catchatiger Design Studio with more enthusiasm than good sense.
The first official quote that we sent launched us on a journey of immense highs and lows. We have pushed our creative boundaries and learnt lessons in the hardest way possible. As business partners and friends, Pieter and I have grown in both design and business capacity. Pieter has been drawn towards the technology and animation side of the industry and I found myself gravitating toward web design & WordPress development (a side of the industry that I previously despised).
Over the past 8 years, our small Cape Town design studio has worked with a broad range of clients ranging from local start-ups to corporate and international companies. We have seen brands grow and blossom under our watchful design eye. Our designs stand out from the crowd because every part of a project is carefully considered. Today we specialise in designing WordPress sites that are beautiful and highly functional.
As a small agency we pride ourselves in personal relationships and custom design solutions for every client . each person in our team posses a broad knowledge of all aspects of the creative industry. They can easily take a project from concept to production and roll-out. We send out work of a consistently high standard while maintaining healthy client relationships.
To new ventures
In early 2014, varsity peer Handre de Jager joined the team as Head of Animation. Now. Pieter has launched a sister project by the name of Wolf and Halo. This new company specialises in online marketing strategy and digital content creation. Pieter has led his team of animation and social media experts to local and international heights. W + H is now an industry leader in the creation of animated explainer video, 3D modelling and character development.
Consequently, these 2 companies can cater to any design that a company might have.
